BASF and Corteva are collaborating to provide alternative solutions to help farmers better manage resistant and tough-to-control weeds. During Farm Progress Show this week, the two companies announced an agreement to develop future herbicide-tolerant soybeans and complementing herbicides.
Dr. Peter Eckes is president R&D and regulatory of BASF Agricultural Solutions. “A long-term agreement where we will bring to the market two generations of herbicide-tolerant stacks,” he says. “And they are actually powered by innovative new chemistry.”
